Writer's Workshop

2019-2020 School Year


Writer's workshop is held in Room 43 with Palms teacher Ms. Kelley in some school years. The writer's workshop is held every Wednesday through the month of May, from 3:10 to 4:30pm, and is open to all students.

Ms. Kelley works with the book Writing Magic - Creating Stories That Fly by Gail Carson Levine, who wrote Ella Enchanted.

This is a creative writing class where students can explore their wild imagination within class writing exercises that cover character, setting, plot, and theme. They write, read, and talk about writing. Any student interested can attend a pre-meeting in October. Ms. Kelley goes into depth about her workshop with the students who attend regularly.

Ms. Kelley chooses a maximum of 20 students based on attendance. The workshop is an ongoing program so it is very important that students who sign up are willing to commit to attend on all Wednesdays.

A late bus for students who ride the bus is available.

If you have questions about this program, feel free to phone Palms and leave a message for Ms. Kelley or for Ms. Anderson, Title I Coordinator.
